Review My Case
Which Wright Hip Implants Are Defective?
Defective Wright Medical’s hip implants include:
- Femoral Surface Replacement
- Hip with BFH Technology
- Total A-CLASS Advanced Metal with BFH Technology
- Profemur & Perfecta femoral systems
- Dynasty, Gladiator, Inteseal, Lineage & Procotyl acetabular cup systems
Wright Hip Recalls
Wright Medical has been manufacturing devices used in joint replacements and revisions surgeries since 1950. In fact 60% of their annual sales come from devices used in hip and knee replacement and revision surgeries. However, these devices have caused major complications that stem from their defective design.
Has Wright’s Conserve hip device been recalled? No. Wright Technology has yet to recall the Wright Conserve Plus hip device, regardless of the large amounts of lawsuits in the pipeline and the unacceptably high failure rate.
Has Wright’s Profemur hip device been recalled? No. The FDA’s Manufacturer and User Facility Device Experience (MAUDE) has received 200+ Profemur fracture reports, yet they haven’t called for a Wright Profemur recall.
Injuries Caused By Wright Medical Technology Hips
The Profemur Z hip system and Conserve Plus Total Hip Resurfacing System have unusually high failure rates, resulting from a variety of physical injuries & persistent health problems. The most common symptoms of a failed hip replacement may include
- Hip or groin pain
- Difficulty walking
- Component migration or loosening
- Dislocation and/or fracture
Metal-on-metal hip systems can cause metal ions to leak into the bloodstream, resulting in thyroid dysfunction, renal function impairment, skin rash, depression, cognitive impairment, auditory or visual impairments, and cardiomyopathy.
